Sharon, I wish someone would claim George W. as their son -- no luck so far <smile>. There was a "Susan J. Sanders" enumerated with George and Elizabeth in the 1850 Panola Co. census (North, District 13, p340) - that's as close as I've come so far. I did find a federal land patent for a "George Washington Sanders of DeSoto County" for lands in Tate County, dated May 17, 1847. You can search the Bureau Of Land Management - General Land Office Records online:
Scroll down to the bottom of the search page and enter the Accession Nr: MS (from drop-down menu)3140__.433

If that *is* our George Washington Sanders (he's indexed as "George W. Sanders") -- then he floated around all over North MS (DeSoto, Tippah, Tate, Panola) <smile>.

Yes, I am the grandchild of Ollie Jesse and Gertrude (Martin) Sanders. An aunt gave me a copy of that probate document (ca. 1940) covering John Washington Sanders' estate -- we're certainly NOT from a small family! <smile>.

I'd love to compare notes with you sometime!
